    I am actually going to comit murder :mad:

    My "liberal" mother, who was perfectly happy with my going out/clubbing this weekend has now had a major fit at my for not workng enough. She always goes on telling me to relax and stuff...hypocrite.
    I was really happy because it was my first day of proper revision and i did 4hours , which should of been 6 if she didnt instist on going shopping:mad:


    Anyway i guess the real reason i'm so pissed off because i know i should of worked more, and know am really worried about all of those exams to come

    So is it really too late? Honestly have you all started months ago?

    arghhhhhhhh!

    well i've not started revision yet, thats tomorrows plan as i went to work today! its definatly not too late, i don't know anyone who has already started as easter is the ideal time- about 7/8 weeks off exams. you can only do as much work as you can, and i dont think many people can sit for 6 hours straight and work- its much better to do it all gradually and often as you take more in this way.

    today is only one day, just because you didn't do as much work as you wanted today doesn't mean you are going to fail your exams.

    Aww thanks for that i feel much better now

    I guess i feel my revision its self isn't going too well, and i'm trying to go through EVERYTHING starting from the beginning, so as a result its all quite easy stuff, so i dont feel i'm getting anywhere:mad:

    I'm feeling the same, getting really worried now. Only about 7 months left or just under. It takes me ages to revise about 2 hours for a single topic to revise. I'm very worried but i guess everyone must be right?

    I haven't started yet either. 4 hours is a perfectly resonable amount of revision to do in a day. Just try to keep that up and you'll be fine.

    Relax, depending on how much you can remember your classwork, revision shouldn't take long. If you paid enough attention in class, you could probably get away with studying the evening before exams.
